Sometimes you think you invented something, only to find it elsewhere a short time later. That's what happened with the kale dish I made on top of my cabin wood stove. My winter greens are producing well, so I though I would experiment a bit.
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon water
1/4 cup walnuts
Saute onion and garlic in olive oil until tender. Add crushed thyme leaves to release flavours. Tear kale leaves and add them a few at a time to the pan to wilt. Sprinkle with lemon juice and water to help with the wilting process. Add walnuts broken into pieces. Cook uncovered until the kale is firm, but tender.
This simple dish can be either a side dish, or a main course, depending on your mood. Stay tuned tomorrow to find out about the newest pub in Powell River, BC. They have a small, but interesting menu, including a small entree they call "A Hot Mess." -- Margy
